#1. We now have more than two readers of the blog. In fact, I think it’s grown to 4 or 5 readers. That’s 100%-150% growth. If we can get it to 8-9 readers, we may get a sponsor for the blog. I can see it now; “Germanwings.com presents the Foltice Blog.”
#2. The bad thing about having 4-5 readers is that I no longer have any good stories to share in person. That means instead of sharing an interesting story with a friend, the conversation usually goes,
Someone: “I read your blog post on (fill in the story). That sounds crazy.”
Me: “Um, yup. It was.”
Someone: “Uh, Okay. See you later.”
It’s like the Seinfeld episode where Kramer sells his stories to J. Peterman for his biography. (I apologize to the 2 German readers who won’t understand this Seinfeld example. Here’s a link to a part of this episode.) It’s like I have sold my good stories to the blog and now they belong to the blog and no longer to me.
Maybe I need to omit some details of each story so I can say, “But what I didn’t say in the post was (fill in a couple of really interesting points.)” It would be like a weird premium access to the blog (and we’re back down to 2 readers.)

#3. I am very well taken care of here. Since the post, I have received a cell phone from the basketball team and all of the keys required to access the University Business Building 24/7 so an episode that like won't happen again.
Now that I am more prepared, the Commute II Sequel will be even more boring than the first. However, James Franco will still be playing the role of me in the sequel.
